A recent poll done by the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) found that over 50% of the public believe that inflation is the biggest issue currently in the Unites States. With that, many Americans are concerned about being able to afford basic living necessities like food, utilities, rent, gas, and unexpected medical bills, to name a few. Around 36% of Americans in this study are also worried about how they will be able to afford their monthly health insurance premiums while over 40% are worried about the cost of prescription drug costs.
Furthermore, more than half of the adults in this poll admitted to having delayed or gone without medical services because of rising costs. As far as hearing healthcare, one in ten in this poll said that they put off getting routine hearing checks and even hearing aids. Statistics like these are shocking and are on the verge of rising in connection with the rising costs of everything else around consumers.
